Robert Rizzo sues Bell over unpaid salary

BELL, Calif.

Rizzo claims his contract was breached when the city of Bell stopped paying him last year.

Rizzo said he's owed benefits and wages, with interest, because he hasn't been convicted of a felony and hasn't resigned from his position.

Rizzo currently faces several charges for allegedly orchestrating a scheme to loot more than $6 million from Bell's city treasury.

He has pleaded not guilty.
